It’s a good news update so far. I built three more boxes (from untreated recycled pallets). One is actually a two cell box with separate entrances but under the same roof. Even though they were placed some way from the original box they found them the first night and spent about a week packing them out with nesting materials we left nearby each day. All four hoglets and the adult (mother?) are still seen every day. What is slightly amusing they don’t seem to be fussy which box they retire to. If it’s occupied they move onto another although one pair seem happy sharing.
Even though it’s mid-December, on mild days they do sometimes pop out for a feed during the day so they have grown massively.
